CDC-3 Changer question


Recommended Posts

Hi again,

My 1999 C2 Porsche has the CDR-220 Radio with the single CD player, I found a used CDC-3 Six Disc CD Changer (that goes into the front, beside the AMP) and I have ordered the wiring harness (PN 993 645 453 00). What I can't find is anything showing any 'how-to' on installing it into the car. It looks straight forward but I'd like to know, before hand, of there is something specal I'll need to watch out for or do in this installation.

I have looked through the DIY section and all I found was the 'how-to' for the 03 Porsche and I believe they have the CDC-4 Changer and use 'Optic' type cables; my wire harness is just basic type plugs (three plug into the Changer wires and two go into the radio).

So, if there is something out there I'd sure like to see it.

Thanks for any help,

C'ya,

Once again....THANKS Loren,

So, it does look very straight forward except the big difference being that this 'how-to' is for a Boxster; some of the parts (AMP for one) are in different places but the location of the Changer is the same.

I also remember reading someplace that I might have to have the Dealer "turn the radio on" for the CD Changer??? I guess I'll know that if the radio doesn't recognize that the CD is present, after installation.

Thanks again for your help,

C'ya,

Not for a CDC-3 - you just use the change modes button to cycle through FM, single CD, and CDC-3.
